Businessman Turns Down £6m Offer For Number Plate

F1 Number Plate

Businessman Afzal Kahn first bought his ‘F1’ number plate back in 2008 for £440,000, which you might already think is a considerable sum. However Kahn was recently offered £6m for it, which is a 1250% increase in value in just 5 years. He turned it down.

So “why on earth didn’t he take the money?” I hear you ask. “However good the ‘F1’ plate looks on his £1m 16-cylinder Bugatti Veyron, surely everyone has their price.” Well, you may be onto something. Maybe Mr Khan is holding out for a bigger offer, one closer to the £7.1m allegedly paid for the ‘1’ plate in 2008.

Or perhaps Mr Kahn simply doesn’t need the money. He is a highly successful business owner after all, with his own private plate collection. It has been said that he is enjoying the publicity over his refusal to part with his favourite plate.

If you can believe it, the ‘F1’ plate was originally partnered with aVolvo S80! If you owned the ‘F1’ plate, what car would you want to go with it?
